What is the best way to create 16x16 (small) icons?

If you’re an icon perfectionist, like the factory workers are, then you’ll want your small, list-view icons to look as good as your 32×32 sized icons. This means not simply cropping the larger versions to fit (as that sometimes is the case) but instead to design the smaller icon versions by hand.

When working with IconBuilder, its best to always use a large sized canvas and build each of your different icon sizes and bit depths on their own layers. Once the individual resource’s sizes are complete you can paste them into one of the existing preset grids to quickly and easily construct them with IconBuilder.
